BASIC is an acronym for Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code. The primary purpose of this project is to reproduce the overall experience provided by the original GW-BASIC (Microsoft Corporation circa 1983-1988); preserving this important chapter in computing history and making it available for future generations to enjoy. Features: * Faithful recreation of the original GW-BASIC "IDE" (REPL). * Full support for graphics keywords such as PSET, LINE, CIRCLE, PAINT, GET, PUT and DRAW * Full support for CGA and EGA graphics modes including original fonts. * Full support for all File I/O keywords. * Uses isolated (local) storage to create a virtualized C:\ file system. * File "browser" for file management (LOAD, CHDIR, RMDIR, KILL, etc.). * Completely functional regardless of network connection. * Supports Portrait and Landscape. * Much, much, more... Still to come... * Continue to improve interactive experience through the touch-centric Phone UI. * PLAY commands. * Easily share code with fellow coders; so get started now if you'd like to have your code featured! This ***IS*** the GW-BASIC you remember... on the phone! Don't accept anything less. TRIAL MODE All commands/keywords/functions are available except the following: * OPEN, CLOSE, INPUT#, LINE INPUT#, WRITE#, LOC, EOF, LOF, LOCK, UNLOCK, FIELD, GET (File), PUT (File) * SAVE, MERGE, KILL, MKDIR, RMDIR * CHAIN, COMMON Use of these methods in trial mode will cause an Advanced Feature error (73) that can be trapped using ON ERROR.
